Huh? Could Cleaner Air Be Worsening Global Warming?

So let’s turn up those coal – powered power plants & turn off the anti – emission cleaners ( I’m talking to YOU, China ! ) ! Everybody drive those cars & motorcycles as much as possible ! Or one of my personal favorite ideas – Drop some bombs into Mt. Vesuvius, Mt. St. Helens, Pinatubo, Krakatoa, etc. ! Let’s fill the sky with particulate matter !

I think that someone needs to re – check their data here….. A second opinion wouldn’t hurt.

Global warming may be exacerbated by an unintentional source: anti-air pollution laws that are making the skies clearer, new research suggests.

Wearable Sensors Could Translate Sign Language Into English

This is a refreshing break for me & my blood presure from venting my anger & frustration / pissedoffedness đŸ™‚ at the GOP’s / Fox ” News ” / Religious Right terminal idiocy over the last week…..

ANYWHO – This new type of wearable sensor (  s ) could really break down a lot of communication barriers someday & change things for a lot of people – including those of us who don’t diddly – squat about sign – language ( I took courses off & on for about 3 years & came away remembering about 1 % of what I studied. It’s not easy. And ASL isn’t the ONLY sign language. ).

A VERY interesting article about how tech can break down some barriers, at least those imposed by nature & / or injury, disorders, etc.

Wearable sensors could one day interpret the gestures in sign language and translate them into English, providing a high-tech solution to communication problems between deaf people and those who don’t understand sign language.

The 9 dumbest things said by conservatives in 2015

ONLY 9 things ? C’mon guys, you’re not trying hard enough…..

Excuse Pat Robertson, he’s old, decrepit, he probably has maybe a few years left before he goes to face whoever & answer for his stupidity, ignorance & corruption.

Excuse me, I’m usually more charitable than this, & I can be a really nice l’il fella 95 %  of the time, but these looney – toons bring out the worst in me when I read about their collective / singular weirdness.

Speaker at Trump rally: ‘I believe he was sent from God’ to stop ‘this oppression from illegal aliens’

If this reincarnation of Hitler & Stalin DOES get elected, I’m moving to Canada or Australia / New Zealand. Because America will truly be headed down the u – bend…..

Trump Supporter Shouts ‘Sieg Heil’ As African American Protester Is Removed

This nut – job & his followers / supporters are just plain old repellent as well as scary as Hell.

I hope his people are in the MINORITY & his chances of getting elected are the same as an ice cube surviving a solar – flare. IF enough Americans are blind / insane enough to vote for him, we might as well wear brown shirts & learn how to goose – step in parades. Scary. I have very little GOOD to say about the Grand Old Party anymore. Fortunately they appear to be destroying each other.

It was bound to happen sooner rather than later, but although everyone knew it was coming it was still a little disconcerting to hear an official Nazi call for idol worship and victory at a political rally for the Republican frontrunner for the party’s presidential nomination.

New Wearable Keyboards Could Be Sewn into Clothing

I’m going out on a limb here & assuming that wearable keyboards & whatever peripherals are developed later can survive a sudden shower, being pushed into a pool ( how many of us have had smart – phone damage due to a cell phone plopping into a sink ? ) a spill from a bike, chopper, skateboard, etc. ?

Doubts re. : durability aside, this does sound interesting. A novel by Larry Niven once mentioned shirts with LCD displays in the sleeves, so maybe it’s not so far – fetched.

” May you ( we ! ) live in interesting times ” is a phrase I may adopt as a tagline !

Researchers have developed wearable keyboards made of electronics knitted together like fabric that could lead to a new kind of human-machine interface.

Fox panel freaks out after New York judge is sworn in on the Koran: ‘What does this mean?’

They’re Fox Faux News. They freak out over B.S. like this. It’s what they’re paid / Pavlovian – conditioned to do.

Does it make a tinker’s damn bit of difference if an official is sworn in on the Koran, Book of Mormon, Darwin’s ” Origin of Species “, one of the Harry Potter books, ” War & Peace ” or, angels & ministers of grace defend us ( & aid us ), a draft of the U.S. Constitution ?

Rupert Murdoch, you’re responsible for this congregation / asylum of Right Wing, nut – job whackaloons, religious right extremists, bigots, xenophobes, hate & fear – mongers. It’s on YOUR hands dripping from your fingertips, buddy. Do something to cleanse the grime & bad karma from your vermin – gnawed, ignorance – peddling soul.

WATCH: These Trump supporters would still back him if he proposed ‘national registry of Jews’

But where will these sheep be when he becomes too old, weak, toothless & relatively poor to bully them, lead them by the nose & share his ” wisdumb ” with the faithful of the flock, hmm ?

The man’s a walking HATE CRIME.

Just a thought – & a mini harangue from this humble observer…..

Malala Yousafzai slams Trump: His idea to ban Muslim immigration is ‘full of hatred’

Thank you AND your family, Malala – You are wise beyond your years. Unfortunately the young lady knows TOO MUCH about hate after the assassination  attempt on her life. She knows someone whose heart is withered by hate & whose soul is withered, charred & dessiccated by negativity & corruption as well as love of wealth for its own sake – Like ” The Donald “.

She is STILL much kinder, more humane & gentler than I would be criticizing St. Donald, the self – proclaimed political ” saviour ” ( The super – hypocrite ).

CNN host grills Rev. Franklin Graham: Banning Muslim refugees is not very Christian of you

The Religious Right is neither CHRISTIAN nor very RIGHT. They’re self – righteous xenophobic bigots. The Pharisees of our time.

I don’t think J.C., Mother Teresa or even Mahatma Gandhi would think much of this.

I’m reminded of a quotation by Mahatma Gandhi : ” I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ “.
